The last few years have been quite evolutionary for Indian cinema with pan-Indian films becoming the new norm and artists from all over the country crossing over to different industries. Recently, Alia Bhatt made her South debut with RRR, and this year we have many South actors coming in Hindi films as well. The one that I am most excited about is the national crush, Rashmika Mandanna and this morning my excitement just got tripled as it was announced that she has bagged her third project in Hindi, even before the release of her debut Hindi film.
Check out the announcement here:
On the auspicious occasion of Ugadi & Gudi Padwa, we welcome @iamRashmika to the team of #Animal!
Shooting begins this summer.@AnilKapoor #RanbirKapoor @thedeol @imvangasandeep #BhushanKumar @VangaPranay @MuradKhetani #KrishanKumar @anilandbhanu pic.twitter.com/BeNEQj6nyL

The crime drama had piqued my interest ever since its inception as the gory voice over by Ranbir in the film’s title announcement had just sent chills down my spine. The film will go on floors this summer and is eyeing a release of August 11, 2023. Animal is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar’s T-Series, Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios and Pranay Reddy Vanga’s Bhadrakali Pictures.
